Since relocating to Paris from Seoul more than twenty years ago, Seulgi Lee has developed a unique artistic
practice immediately recognizable for its use of color, gesture, simple yet elegant forms, and performance.
In spite of (or perhaps linked to) its deference to bright, cheerful color, Lee has described her sculptural
practice as utilitarian, invariably related to the power, fragility, and contingency of the body: her works
are tools, to be available at-hand, used by those who are nearby. Culled from everyday belongings, masks,
and pedestrian objects, these artworks frequently employ a vocabulary more readily used to describe craft,
and challenge arbitrary distinctions between mannered, formal sculptural syntax and a more popularized design
or craft aesthetic.
